Is it possible to continue with the English "style" of riding in as Aussie saddle or is it an entirely different riding style? Thanks!
It is very doable I did it for over 5 months. It has the deepness of a dressage saddle but the extra security of a western saddle. I really liked the fact I was secure no matter what, but personally I found I loved my dressage saddle more :P
Have fun though!! And congratulations on becoming a horse owner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
